, this organized religion. he is not ready to, you know, get organized religion. he is fascinated by the concept that there is somebody called god-- which happens to us. it happened to me in childhood. i used to wait for the time when-- for the time of prayer i used to wait and i used to cry. you know, who is god? >> rose: this is where pi begins the journey. he were it is. this is our first scene. ♪ ♪ >> my name is pi. i have been in a shipwreck. i am on a lifeboat alone with a tiger. please send help. >> rose: what's happening in that scene? >> well, it's just like-- it's very hard to fin to define god. it is very hard to define what tiger is to pi. there are the obstacles of the beast. there's, you know, pi, the inner beast, the crouching tiger, so to speak, in him. so in the spiritual moment, in the hopelessness, his looking at his opponent, but at the same time, himself, the fearful tiger and also the truth of his own self, and this is the moment before he revealed himself to god, not religious god, but god in the abstract sense. as you can see, the water is like mirror. it's very refl

you come from, no matter what religion you practice. the right of people to live without the threat that their families may be harmed simply because of who they are or where they come from. only the people of this country can define your union, can define what it means to be a citizen of this country. but i have confidence that, as you do that, you can draw on the diversity as a strength and not a weakness. your country will be stronger because of many different cultures. but you have to seize that opportunity. you have to recognize that strength. i say this because my own country and my own life have taught me the power of diversity. the united states of america is a nation of christians and jews and muslims and buddhists and hindus and nonbelievers. our story is shaped by every language, enriched by every culture. we have people from every corner of the word. we have tasted the bitterness of civil war and segregation. but our history shows us that hatred in the human heart can recede. that the lines between racism and tribes can fade away. and what's left is a simple truth, out of
reform, war on religion. if you're karl rove, where is our lane we're supposed to swim? on the democratic side it was all about the middle class all the time and that's the focus. >> and attacking mitt romney's record at bain all at time. >> if mitt romney wins, the middle class loses, those two things married up well. >> liz, as someone who is -- zb >> not an apparahchic. >> they bought words u including words economy, dressage. while it's funny, shrewd strategic move speaks to the ethos of two campaigns, the notion there was a sense of humor the obama campaign understood, a way of poking fun at mitt romney that was quietly devastating. mitt romney never had that on his side. no way to be funny or clever about president obama. >> the left has the fun. and you guys were awesome. but there was also, i'm going to toot my own horn, because we came up with this actually campaign where we had rosy perez and all of these people having fun. i did crazy videos not safe for work that were like in your face like this is what happens when you have a transvaginal thing if you don't want to get f'd, v
allowing a situation to deter youruate further and further a religion bore that will create more and more hatred and inability of the country to come together again? i am worried that we are not capable. we seem to be not capable at this moment to use the kind of zip sei -- diplomacy i think would be highly desirable top find buy to bring russia to work out a deal with us to find solution to go forward instead of saying no, no, no, and no again. so i think -- i just want to make the point that paula also made as wonderful as, you know, the modern tools are, the world will not allow us to get away with just tools. we will need to confront these situations, and i think the moment is here where it is overdue, it is extremely urgent to try to find a way that will end the killing in syria not only because it has canings for israel and other countries in indonesia, but because it sits, of course, a terrible negative example to others bad guys in this region and elsewhere who will be encouraged if they can get away with these types of behavior if we don't act. so i think this is a huge challenge
was doing on a day-to-day basis. when he was advertising on welfare reform and the war on religion, i think the republican superpacs you're probably thinking what on earth are we doing here? >> so what you're saying is they were -- they need to get better at not coordinating their campaigns? [laughter] >> it's not even a matter of coordination, it's a matter of strategic direction, and the romney campaign never had one. and on the obama side, it was pretty clear his campaign was about the middle class. and every single ad we ran was if mitt romney wins, the middle class loses. so i think there was a much clearer lane for us to swim in than on the romney side. were they supposed to defend against the bain attacks? were today supposed to bet -- get into the welfare reform game? it was unclear. >> look, though, you run a superpac. do you think they're good for america? >> no. i think a system where you can give unlimited contributions and in some cases not disclose who those contributions come from is not something that's particularly a good thing for the country. our view is that even though
treat the vulnerable. but i think this partisan manipulation of religion, i'm an evangelical and what's clear now is that evangelical will no longer mean white evangelical and franklin graham has to get used to that. evangelical is hispanic, african-americans, asians, didn't vote the way he did this time by a large majority. so we brought other issues into the election like how we treat the poor, how we treat the environment, how we welcome strangers. you in evangelicals last week writing the president last week saying how we treat the immigrant undocumented people is for us a biblical issue. we're going to write them again this week, the president and say who are serving the poor at christmastime and thanksgiving we're involved in that. those of us who are doing that are going to say to our members of congress don't make decisions that make the poor poorer and make our work harder. so you might say we're doing turkey baskets for the poor than baskets of letters to our some of our turkeys who represent us in congress. >> the moral majority for so longing had sway with partisan sway. d
: they were talking about religion on the last show, and i just wanted to make a comment. it seems that all the republican ministers, you know, like the evangelical people their ministers are more like glenn beck, what they were taught. they probably had ministers like glenn beck in their churches. i'm lutheran so i just had a pastor like a regular he didn't do anything but read out of the bible. he didn't act like glen we glenn beck. if you're raised you don't know the difference. but people who have religious parents that are taught in the traditional way from their grandparents are different than born again people. >> stephanie: i don't much-- >> caller: either you have parents, grandparents or great grandparents who taught you or a minister you don't know anything about religion, and you have glenn beck. >> stephanie: i don't know much about lutherism except you have great hot dishes. >> caller: it's your traditional catholic or traditional methodist, it's all from catholic. i'm swedish. >> i'm practiceing catholic. i practiced so good i'm not practicing any more. >> that's easy to do o
. the menorah and hanukkah display. but santa monica said pox on all of your houses and religion goes out out of the windo and we'll not allow the first amendment and as a result in the public square, christian and jewish symbols will not be allowed to be display in santa monica. they will go to court to stop it and the war on christmas has begun. we'll watch this case closely. it is an important one. people want to see. >> steve: it is and too bad that the tradition. >> it was a wonderful thing to see and disappointing that it is going by the boards. >> steve: thank you for joining us. enjoy your thanksgiving. >> thank you. >> steve: straight ahead, the statute was posed to honor pope john ii, why did it look more like mussolina. he's suing his brother's groomsman. those stories straight ahead. come on, guys. ♪ ♪ great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole. see the seam? more pcessed flakes look nothing like natural grains. i'm eating what i kn is better nutrition. mmmm. great grains. search great grains and see for yourself. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than
changes -- than those who seek power and force others to obey their commands? why does the use of religion to support a social gospel and preemptive wars both which require authoritarians to use violence or the threat of violence go unchallenged? aggression and forced redistribution of wealth has nothing to do with the teachings of the world's great religions. why do we allow the government and the federal reserve to disseminate false information dealing with economic and foreign policy? why is democracy held in such high esteem when it's the enemy -- when it's the enemy of the minority and makes all rights relative to the dictates of the majority? why should anyone be surprised that congress has no credibility since there's such a disconnect between what politicians say and what they do? is there any explanation for all the deception, the unhappiness, the fear of the future, the loss of confidence in our leaders, the distrust and anger and frustration? yes, there is. and there's a way to reverse these attitudes. the negative perceptions are logical and a consequence of bad policies bringi
a weird thing as a muslim to have my religion used as a way to delegitimatize the president. you know? yeah, this play sort of deals with a lot of that stuff. it's a very brave, provocative piece of theater, and i was very excited about it. >> why did you take on this role, because it is so different than what you normally do? >> well, i'm an actor, so i have been doing dramatic stuff and comedic stuff my whole career. ever since i played that pixie in the school play. thank god people know about that now. >> roll the tape. where is that? >> there probably is somewhere. i've been doing both my whole career, so, know, the last six or seven years i have been on "the daily show" and people know me as that guy, that comedian guy, but for me to go do dramatic stuff is not that much of a stretch. i have been doing it a lot. >> when you saw how the election turned out and we have heard from mitt romney very recently saying that, look, he thought the reason obama won says was because he thought there were gifts he was giving out to african-americans, to latino, to young people. >> cars and th
respect to religion because i know that you're a very religious person and do you feel that god has a plan for you. >> yes. the gentleman who ran against me was told by god -- and people would say well, you know, you're theologically trained, you can probably slice him to pieces. my response was any time anybody says they were told by god to do something, i leave it alone. you know. i would say that sometimes the voice of god we hear is our own voice in disguise. and so i'm -- but at the same time i'm careful about saying well, why would god talk to you? you only have a bachelor's degree or you only -- and it was in geography. but i think we leave that alone. now i don't think that we have to manufacture a god discussion and i became really angry with many democrats saying we've got to start talking about god. my response is god will not be pimped. are we going to talk about him so we can impress some people who believe that -- say the word "god." called the name "god." i can't do that. i think in the course of who we are
reform and the war on religion. if you're sitting at the crossroads to restore the future the republicans to pack your probably thinking what on our roof are we doing here. >> so you are saying they need to get better at not coordinating their campaigns. >> it's not even a matter of coordination it's a matter of strategic direction and the romney campaign never really handled in on the obama side of this pretty clear he was running a campaign that was about the middle class and every single ad that we ran was that if mitt romney wins the middle class loses was the tag line at the end. yes, i think that there was a much clearer lane for us to swim the on the republican side where they didn't know where there was a was to defend against the attacks, were they supposed to just get the president's jobs, were they supposed to get the welfare reform? it was unclear. >> welcome a look while you run a superpac do you think they are good for america? >> no i think there is too much money in politics and a system where you can get unlimited contributions and in some cases not disclose who the contr
